The Cherry on Top of the Cake!

 Hurrah! Yippee! Yee-haw! It’s time for even more awards – well, at least one…

The very lovely Bernie from One Mixed Bag has honoured me with The Cherry on Top Award! How exciting? *Tiny squeals*

I just love Bernie! Get your bottoms over to her site ‘cos she’s funny! Just to clarify: That’s funny ‘ha-ha, not funny ‘peculiar’…

To accept this magnificent award I must list three things I love about myself. Umm….Erm….Okay, breathe. I can do this… C’mon, Bozo, there has to be something… How about your hair? Nah, that’s a complete pain in the arse. Your Bottom? Yeah, right. ‘Cos I really love my hippo-arse… Er…Okay, I’ve got it now…

  • To use one of Bernie’s terms, I’m a great Helper bee. If I can do anything to help make someone’s life easier, I’ll do it, and I’ll do it with a smile on my gob. Mostly…
  • I can see the funny side of everything and can usually make people laugh. Sometimes it’s unintentional, but it’s still a talent, right?
  • I’m a fighter. No, I don’t mean with fists or bitch-slaps, but in life. It doesn’t matter what gets chucked in my face – and I’ve had pretty much every imaginable kind of crap thrown my way – I’ll come out fighting. Usually after a day or two of wallowing around in my pyjamas, wailing about the unfairness of it all, but I do come out fighting!

Next, I have to post a photo that I love. This one is entitled Girl-Power! It’s a picture of The Ex, The Ex’s youngest Daughter and our Youngest Son. God, it would be sooo much easier to use names! Youngest Daughter came for a visit in September and the four of us went out for the day. On the way back The Ex got a puncture. After half an hour of the boys faffing around, Youngest Daughter just grabbed the spare tyre and got on with it! Me? I was sitting under a tree taking photos of it all!   🙂

Doing a woman's job...

Finally I must pass this award onto blogs I love. I always hate this part ‘cos I’m a no-conflict kinda gal and I just lurve everyone, but today I’m passing this onto three blogs that I have recently come across:

Alicia at McCrenshaw because she always writes with such honesty and freshness.

Kim at My Inner Chick. This girl’s got great attitude, plus she has some really chilling pages on domestic violence.

Lisa at Third Time’s a Charm for giving love and marriage a second go! What a girl!

Hope you’ll all go take a look and enjoy some of the posts I’ve been reading!

  1. Great picture! I love when girls show up the boys!

  2. Well ain’t you special now!!!! LOL!!

    Girl, go learn how to change a flat (that’s what they’re called here in the states). It is SO freakin’ easy!

    I like helping people also. We’ll start a “Helping Hands” business when I come over!

    Congrats on your award! It’s well deserved!

    • Aww, shucks! *blushes* I would’ve passed it to you, but you already have it!

      I can’t learn how to change tyres – who’d take the funny photos?!

      I keep seeing a van going around called ‘I’m Yours if You Want me!’ He’ll decorate, odd-job, shop or just sit and chat – what a fab job! We could be called ‘We’re Yours Whether You Want Us Or Not!’ 🙂

  3. Just to clarify, Bernie can be funny ‘peculiar’. 😉 Congrats on the award, you sure deserve it, I s enjoy reading your blog, espically now that I was smart enough to have it sent to my email. (I am a little slow sometimes.) Have a great day!!

    • Well, I didn’t want to be the one to say it…. 😉

      Thank-you! I know you’ve just had one as well. They’re so cool! 🙂 When I subscribe to any blogs, I like the e-mail thingy ‘cos if I subscribe via a reader or Google or something, I forget where they are! Doh!

  4. WOW…. Cool. thanks so much, Tiny. 🙂 xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  5. I know I’ve said this already, but I am seriously over the moon! Thanks!!!

  6. Aw… thank you! It’s nice to know that *someone* out there thinks I’m fresh! Been feeling kinda stale lately, with the gray hair and wrinkles slowly taking over 😉

    Love that picture! That’s the story of my life – let the men fuck around with something just long enough for them to say, “Well, it just can’t be fixed. We’re going to have to get a new one.” Then come in with a butter knife and a roll of duct tape and have things looking and working like new in under a minute! LOVE IT!!!

    Oh, and glad to see you posting. I was getting worried. If I hadn’t seen anything today, I was going to start stalking you via email/Google/Twitter/Facebook….!

    • I know about the grey hair/wrinkles stuff, but I always enjoy the variety of stuff you post 🙂

      Last week my neighbours wanted to move the telly that was mounted on the wall – two blokes doing it. Neither had a drill, rawl plugs or filler to fill the old holes, but I did! Where would they be without us girls? 🙂

      Please stalk me! It sounds exciting! Just had a busy week – have still to finish my Friday Follow Thingy post! And it’s half-eight at night here!! 🙂 But thanks for looking out for me – we’ve got such a great community here, I love it! 🙂

  7. Very Nice. Thanks, Tiny. I shall place this on my site xxxx So cool & thanks for making others aware of Domestic Violence 🙂 WOW

  8. I love your blog and you always make me laugh. So you deserve this award. I’m still waiting for you to go find that worker on the street and get his number. Hop to it girl!
